Krafton, the developer of PUBG Battlegrounds, has announced that it has started to develop its new project, which is about the Bird that Drinks Tears, one of Korea’s important fantasy works.
Written by Lee Yeongdo, this series consists of four books, with Krafton working on an entirely new experience based on this world and characters.
Krafton says he’s recruiting world-class talent for this game, as well as concept artist Iain McCaig, who has previously worked in Star Wars and The Avengers.
“The Bird That Drinks Tears is unlike any fantasy I’ve read, it’s a work that offers brand new ways to explore human nature. That’s what appealed to me the most. I think it’s a Lord of the Rings or Dune-level epic. I put aside my own projects for this work,” McCaig said. For me to do such a thing, the work in question had to be incredibly special. This novel is such a work.” said.
In the meantime, let’s add that Krafton is currently collaborating with Ubisoft for the Assassin’s Creed themed crossover in PUBG Battlegrounds.
